What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mt. Hood Community College is a good community college, I recommend MHCC to others who have not decided on their future career goals. In general, going to MHCC or any community college is a great way to save money for general studies then transferring to a university to earn a bachelors. I will say that MHCC has the best TRIO-student support services that I am also a part of. I also take online classes and they are quite easy and I definitely prefer online then going to class, because of the flexibility. Some advisors are not the best and I recommend TRIO 100% if a student is planning on pursuing a bachelors degree. I also recommend going to student orientations or scheduling a one on one tour with a tour guide on the MHCC website. Asking questions is essential because their portal system can be very confusing and even signing up for classes can be tricky at first. On a final note, parking in the morning after 8:00 am is a hassle, and I highly recommend getting to school a bit early for morning/afternoon classes or park by the back of the school near the headstart/school buses. Also, cars do get stolen quite frequently near the ​J parking lot, because it is near the sidewalk with outside traffic.

The culture at MHCC is great! The programs range from Business all the way to Wilderness Leadership. There are all kinds of students that are taking different majors and advisers that are willing to talk to you about it. Going to class at MHCC every day seems as if we were at a university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mt. Hood has a very welcoming community. There are professors here to not only do their job, but are willing help a student find his or her classroom. Mt. Hood also has a grateful avid room in which you can different forms of tutors. From writing to math, They are willing to help! Sports facilities and facilities in general are great for a community college. With Basketball and weight room open from 12-1 open to the community. It helps as it gives students opportunities to experience stuff they don't at a university. Other classes we offer are GED which is a high school diploma, but with not as much schooling, and is easier to get. The student union here is a great place to get homework and other things done while not in class, great place other than the library. In case it gets full.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a school that doesn't have a lot of culture. It feels like a school that is a stepping stone or an entry-level school that will lead you onto something bigger. People go to this school to start out their college path and because of that, a lot of people don't know about the process so I feel like they could do a better job communicating with the students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a wonderful college to be. They have wonderful places to go for help to finding your right career path if you are having trouble. They have a ton of classes to take to second languages classes to auto shop classes. They are across from a movie theater and a few minutes away from a outdoor mall. They are public transit goes right by the college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mt. Hood Community College is different from your average community college. The setting is unique, since the campus is surrounded by a lush forested area, where people can enjoy nature and take outdoor classes. Oregon’s famous Mt. Hood can be seen on a clear day, from all different angles, whether you are relaxing outside on the bright red picnic tables or doing your homework in the Student Union. MHCC provides many fun areas for nature lovers, such as an outdoor bonfire that, with faculty permission, students can use and a state-of-the-art planetarium for lovers of the cosmos. The college layout is open, as classrooms are generally not enclosed by buildings, and can be accessed with no difficulty. This promotes a calming and effective learning environment. Professor’s are easily accessible with their offices being sectioned by department, making them easy to find. Of course, it is expected that you abide by office hours, to make sure that your instructors are not distracted from grading or their other work. Academically, Mt. Hood offers a range of different programs, all the way from Cosmetology to Digital Media to Nursing! As a community college, you can really feel that MHCC caters to the demands of the public and is trying to help everyone achieve their goals. From my perspective, Mt. Hood really provides a stable environment to learn and gives you a great education for a lower cost. I highly recommend Mt. Hood CC to anyone in the Portland or Gresham areas!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

They know how to keep the students involved and every class I’ve been in everyone there is there to learn and they’re engaged in the class. I’ve met some down to earth people too, my first term a women of twin babies is taking classes trying to make a better future for her kids and I thought that was amazing. This term a guy that did drug for years decided to quite and finish school, he got his GED and he’s working on his associates. This school is full of people that have unique stories and this college is putting all those stories into one. If you get someone like that in your class try and learn from them, ask them politely why they’re there and how they got there. Learn and hopefully you won’t make the same mistakes that they did.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

After being here for one year, I have found that I really appreciate the small class sizes. It feels more one on one with the professors and keeps everyone closer together. Overall I think this is a great place to start our getting your transfer or associates. There are so many great programs this college has to offer. We have a great mechanical and technical 2 year degree that throws you right into the work force. Overall a great school to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy attending Mt. Hood Community College. The professors are amazing individuals, they are very concerned about their students and care about how they are doing in class and outside of class. There are a handful of teachers that are not the best but most professors are very compassionate. The facility feels very safe, it is older but is kept in good condition. I would like to mention that one thing that Mt. Hood Community College excels at, is providing free resources for students such as scholarship workshops.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mt hood is decent for the price. Some departments are lacking (the math department for example is hard to find a good professor for, with decent hours). The library is nice for studying but a little on the small side. Bathrooms are a hit or miss, and don't even get me started on the parking situation. However, Mt Hood Community College is about what I expected it to be. It is very diverse, but is somewhat affordable, and now even has my favorite coffee place on campus!
